ARTHUR CLARKE BOYDEN
" not to be ministered
unto, but to minister "
Whose kindly spirit, clarity of thought,
and forceful ness of character have
so guided Bridgewater's prog-
ress through the years.
DR. ARTHUR CLARKE BOYDEN
Principal of the State Normal School at Bridgewater
President of the State Teachers College at Bridgewater
April 2, 1932— March 15, 1933
Those who have had the privilege of being associated
with Arthur Clarke Boyden have been influenced by his sim-
plicity of character, his nobleness of spirit, and his breadth
He was a leader among leaders in the field of education
and one to whom many came for inspiration and guidance.
He kept abreast of the progressive movements of the time,
taking from them the finer and more cultural values, not
allowing the superficial and fleeting to turn him from his
professional ideals. Never self-seeking or working for his
own interests, he received the many honors which came to
him, modestly and unaffectedly, shunning publicity.
He was a real teacher, having the power to interpret life
in all its complexities with a philosophy which was perpet-
He was a lover of children. An invitation from them
brought a ready and warm response from him, and no occas-
ion of theirs was too simple for him to attend. His presence
and appreciative understanding made it a noteworthy event
in their eyes.
He was a public spirited citizen who was honored and
beloved by his fellow townspeople and depended upon for
wise counsel and saneness of judgment.
He was devoted to his home and family circle in which
he enjoyed a rare and beautiful companionship with our
beloved Mrs. Boyden.
He opened for us all many pathways to knowledge and
by the uplifting influence of his spiritual nature and virtuous
example gave us the vision of the more abundant life.

"Service gently given with unassuming graciousness."
Her appreciation of beauty as a practical asset to everyday life was
responsible for the wideness of her unruffled charm ; a charm
never too fragile to comprehend the subtlest humor.

September 1929 .... Freshmen — laden with Wright and Ditson boxes; shivering
in angel robes, struggling with locker combinations.
September 1930 .... Sophomores — crossing the quadrangle loaded with couch
covers and lampshades; strutting, gesticulating, modulating.
September 1931 .... Juniors — burdened with committees; equipping, scoring,
September 1932 .... Seniors — staggering under the weight of the Variorum Shakes-
peare; clogging; posing; promming.
All these have the class of '33 survived. And more, it has lived experiences uniquely
Bridgewater's first Junior Prom shone in its star-spangled blueness for the class of '33.
During the seniority of the class came the "change the name" fever. Ably its members
supervised the transition from "Normal Offering" to "Alpha", the new yearbook cover
design, the creation of the new seal.
At Christmas, in accordance with custom, the class sold cards; but its members flavored
custom with a dash of differentness. They created and sold original, hand-blocked cards
of modern design.
On Class Day the seniors again fused differentness with tradition. Like their pre-
decessors they presented tableaux; unlike them they designed their own sets.
The Class of '33 was the first to meet the question of cap and gown versus the velvet
drape as atmosphere for the year book pictures.
And on the night of June 9th, from 9 until 2, Senior Prom.

"Such let me seem 'til such I be."
When you're trying to locate a startling giggle sometimes
heard in A classes, look for that golden landmark, Mary's
head. But be not surprised to find that the originator of
such mirth is equally at home on the hockey field, on the
basketball court, or within the sacred portals of the gym at
"social" time — and always as the leader of a group.

"She opens her mouth with wisdom; and the
law of kindness is on her tongue."
Among Maccabeah's calm enthusiasms is a joy in growing
things. Her closeness to the earth has given her a homely
sweetness which shyness and modesty have kept from most
people. But those who know her well find in her a true friend.

"It is a friendly heart that has plenty of friends."
A big smile — a little person — a big heart — a little serious-

"More things are wrought in prayer than this
world dreams of" —
Could anyone find a more devout, serious-minded girl than
"Leo"? Could anyone find a person of franker opinion than
she? Could anyone find a more ready partner in jokes and

"Say not that she did well or ill
Only, 'She did her best'."
Helen is a tall, slender, and fair-haired, which doesn't
mean that she is languid. On the contrary her most out-
standing characteristic is industriousness. Helen plays and
works with enthusiasm. Would that we were imbued with
her spirit of helpfulness!
AGNES VERONICA BARRY
327 Cedar Street, New Bedford. W. A. A. 4.
"Hail to thee, blythe spirit."
Beneath her quiet exterior, Agnes conceals a spirit of fun,
and is it a devil-may-care air? As it is her first year at Bridge-
water, after attending Fitchburg, we have not become as well
acquainted with her as we wished. That constant twinkle
in her eye impresses even the inastute observer.

Clarece is a lover of nature in all its forms, with the ability
to give alluring descriptions of beautiful and interesting spots
she has seen.
Her quiet manner is the only outward indication of many
inner resources. These are evident in her clever poems and
varied interests. Geographically, her interest is in the South;
artistically, it is music; practically, it is domestic science;
and actively, her interest is the water sports of Cape Cod.

"Charm strikes the eye, and merit wins the soul."
A distinct appearance of self-possession covers much of
the excitable person beneath that is Evelyn. Broad-minded-
ness prevents her from indulging in lengthy arguments. What
a charming combination in a friend — a serenity that is the
source of much comfort, and an insight that enables her to
understand one's weaknesses. Small wonder at her popularity!

"Fight then with shafts of silver and o'ercome
When no force else can get the masterdom."
Although the themes of most popular songs are frequently
based upon fancy and fallacy, those which have made the
name of "Mary" synonymous with "friends" and "pal",
are true in the case of our Mary. Her hands, an index of
character, aid us in our conception of Mary. Graceful and
lovely, yet withal capable and proficient, they perform won-
ders with "Soennecken" and "Steinway". Did you wonder
about the success of Day Student Socials? Here's the secret —
Mary's hands and heart are the power behind the throne.

Just the cheering clasp of a friendly hand,

A genial good humor, a smiling countenance, and a ready

a serious manner when the occasion demands, and we have
enumerated "Dot's" chief characteristics.

playing the piano, merely another evidence of that versatility
which has won her so many friends from the kindergarten

"True worth is being, not seeming
In doing each day that goes by
Some little good, not in dreaming
Of great things to do by and by."
Mary must have learned the secret of adding extra hours
to a day for she accomplishes so much. Efficiency is her
watchword. Perhaps some day, Mary will be one of the
"World's Famous" — photographers, for her secret delight
is developing and printing pictures.

Pam has a quaint unassuming nature, but underneath it
all is a deep spirit of adventure. The word "unusual" de-
scribes her best. Not only is her classwork unusual, but so
is everything else she does. Her sense of humor, her funny
escapades, her sunny disposition, and her complex character
make her — Pamela.

"Deep-sighted in intelligence,
Ideas, atoms, influence."
Evelyn deserted the ranks of the commuters this year to
get a taste of dormitory life. Perhaps this change was made
so that she might devote even more of her time to Campus
Comment and Class Day exercises. Evelyn's position on
the poster committee is only one evidence of her interest
in art which has been a prevailing influence in her four years

Kay's return to B. T. C. for her fourth year has certainly

her so valuable a member of hospitality committees.

Perfection of achievement is what Mary strives for and
what she usually succeeds in getting. But don't mistake us,
she is not one of those tiresome individuals who are "always
right." Ability, plus the faculty of not putting it "on ex-

A great lover of the out-of-doors is Dot as is shown by her
four years' activities. Whether it be on the field or in the
classroom, hers is the sporting attitude — playing for the love
of playing, working for the love of working.
Her twinkling eyes invite one to know her, and her kindly
manner compels one to love her. Hers is the well-rounded
personality which calls for and demands a host of friends.

Beatrice has always reminded us of one of two things: the

in Quincy or thereabouts.

"A great deal of talent is lost in this

An ardent worker in church organizations, a movie addict,

one more proof that appearances are often deceiving, for
quiet girls are not always unresponsive, and unassuming
classmates are seldom inactive.

Marion is a girl with a purpose. We all admire her for

Elaine epitomizes the expression, "good sport", character-

had her calm assurance and her optimism when confronted
with a hard problem! Because of her scientific inclination,
she has saved many a geography class from embarrassment.

"With gentle yet prevailing force,
Intent upon her destined course."
Optimistic? Marion makes a specialty of looking for
"something different", each time expecting something better
without acquiring the jaded weariness of the sophisticate.
Speculative brown eyes provide ample substitution for jig-
saw puzzles — both take time to figure out.

"The quiet mind is richer than a crown."
Catherine's short stay at Bridgewater has made us truly
believe that she has accepted Carlyle's admonition that
"thought will not work except in silence." As a well-balanced
individual, she is willing at all times to share her serious
moments; as a keen appreciator of wit and humor, she invites
that particular contagion which we all like to feel at times.

Would you be revolutionized in all your pet prejudices?
Then pause in your travel to hear those arguments as she
summons them into battle array; follow her as she builds
up ramparts about them out of the material which a life of
historical reading offers. She will not be carried along by
the common current, but will courageously take her place
as a lover of wisdom and a defender of truth.

Could you picture lovable Mother Cary standing with a
violin bow in her hand, tapping her foot when in and out of
tune with the world? That's Anna — her heart as wide as
her smile and as true as those blue orbs of hers which never

Studying for tests does not bother Helen, but she usually

Miriam impresses one so with her nonchalance that if one
did not know her well, she might be accused of indifference.
But underneath, she is as vitally interested in school activities

Haven't you met people whose weighty discourses bear

and enthusiastic conversation gives a counter action. She
may chat with you about her pet diversion of dancing. If
this does not please your fancy, she can entertain equally

of her words is partially due to the frequent punctuation of
twinkling eyes to all she says.

We understand that Ev, at times, is seized by choking
and hiccoughing spells. We would suggest that he carry a
bottle of peppermint water and on such aforesaid occasions
take a teaspoonful every five or ten minutes until relieved.
It is his present ambition to make "un tour du monde". We
wish him "Success" and may his jovial spirit ever stay by
him. Regards are sent from the horse he rode at Bowdoin.

John has been a well-known figure in the realm of sport,
first coming into prominence early in his freshman year as a
consistent and valuable participant in varsity athletics.
Later when opportunity and his talents offered a chance to
enter newspaper work, he again won recognition, this time
on the sporting pages of several newspapers. A good share
of common sense and a faculty for accurately appraising
situations have undoubtedly had much to do with John's
success both in and outside of school.

February 28, 1932
The carols of the morning mood
Can not be sweeter than thy name,
In ivy garb of shrouded Hope
A blossomed Wisdom was thy gift.
While pointing starward past the hills
O, Alma Mater, thou in love
Did'st lead and guide the blessed quest
Of finding Beauty, hewing Truth.
So dear, thy gift of comradeship,
To each, the dimness of adieu
We know how often thou hast felt
Such partings in thy ripened years.
Yet, courage-tipped thy whitest words
Come from the living past; we've known
And loved its sweetest claim to life,
Of service won for gift to all.

History for Year 1932-1933
The class is rather broken up this year, of course, because of practice teaching; and, in
many cases, we are like "ships that pass in the night" as one crew returns and another em-
barks upon the great adventure.
Nevertheless, at times we do find occasion to get together and these are red letter days
on the Junior calendar. One of these merry occasions — which is as it should be for are we
not jolly Juniors? — was our prom. This year the sophomores joined us in giving the affair
as there is to be no Junior prom next year. — We danced beneath the cold blue glow of the
northern lights in a land of snow and towering icebergs — . Then we looked forward to
the Junior Social.
We, who such a short time ago were lowly Freshmen, find it rather hard at times to
realize just where the years have gone. This has been another glad year and yet, at times,
we cannot help feeling sad at the thought that for some of the "jolly Juniors" this is the
last year at Bridgewater. But then — The very best of luck to you, my dears!

Being "Class Rep" for two years has not bowed Evelyn's
shoulders. She merely throws them back a little farther
and walks a little faster to accomplish the many demands the

for Evelyn is a dreamer as well as a "doer" and anyone who
has seen her art work can testify to its true creative beauty.

a pair of lounging pajamas, a box of candy, and a book of

do, I beg of you, don't ask her to get up for breakfast.

One day a freshman needed cheering, for she was lonely.
Everyone she met spoke briefly, and went on, not knowing
how she craved companionship. That same day a sophomore

her trouble to some one who would sympathize. Down the

what she sought. That night they all met at Reta's door.

She is our loyal athletic supporter, for though she doesn't

"Many a good thing comes in a small package"
Hazel is little, but she has pep, vim, and vigor enough to
make up for any lack of inches. Experience has taught her
that objective lessons have great value. We hope the store-
keepers are generous, Hazel, when you start your career.
ELSIE LILIAN MAXWELL
Main Street, Assinippi.
1. Garden Club 2.
W. A. A. 1,2, 3. Scouts
"This happiness a habit is
For life is what we make it."
Some people have to laugh at their own jokes, or at least
give a cue as to when to laugh, but this is not true of Elsie.
She is wise and witty, and has helped us out of many a tight
place in reading class. But oh! that blush. It was always
beautiful, but sometimes inconvenient. Ask her.
ALICE AILEEN McGRATH
206 Middle Street, East Weymouth. W. A. A.
"Thou, silent friend, dost tease us out of thought."
We fear the blustery winters of Vermont must have been
hard on this young lassie; for she prefers to sit by a radiator
and sip her tea and eat delectable sandwiches. For those of
you who may be curious, ask her to explain her complicated
series of poses. You will certainly find this mode of amuse-
ment quite entertaining.
DOROTHY MILDRED MENDELSON
463 Crescent Street, Brockton.
"Her eyes as stars of twilight fair;
Like twilight, too, her dusky hair."
Dot needed no introduction to Thespis when she met him
in History of Ed. Being so ardent an exponent of the Thes-
pian art saved her from remembering that name for an exam.
ELINOR HARRIETT MEYER
49 Eddy Street, North Attleboro. Glee Club
1, 2. Choir 1, 2. Scouts 1, 2, 3, Captain 3.
W. A. A. 1, 2, 3, Head of Health 3.
"To wake the soul of thy tender strokes of art,
To raise the genius and to mend the heart."
Elinor's middle name is "hustle". How she manages to
get everything done is an inside secret of her own — We others
might consult her! We hope her nonsense hasn't caused
too many gray hairs among the faculty!
HELEN FINLAYSON MORRIS
37 Pearl Street, Quincy. W. A. A. 3.
"Speak gently, 'tis a little thing."
Helen did not join us until our third year at S. T. C, yet
she has become a pleasant addition to our class. We all
appreciate the many times when she has come laden with
sombrero and soup-and-fish to eke out a costume for our
MARION ELIZABETH MORSE
Bay Road, Sharon. W. A. A. 1, 2, 3, Hockey
1, 3, Volley Ball 2, Interpretive Dancing 1, Archery
2. Scouts 1, 2, 3. Hobby Club 2, 3.
"Her life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything."
In her solitude we suspect Marion had found freedom in a
loving study of the poet's view of nature.
MARY ROSE NOCIVELLI
65 Atherton Street, Somerville. W. A. A. 1,
2, 3, Golf 2, Tenniquoit 2, Hockey 1, Volley Ball 2.
"Kind hearts are more than coronets."
There is an "unruffledness" about Mary that is soothing
to us more distracted mortals. Heavy history assignments,
long train trips, — nothing seems to bother her. If we should
see Mary perturbed we would feel that an integral part of
her charm had been lost.
ALICE MARGUERITE NORTON
11 Annis Court, Brockton.
"Grieving is a folly,
Come, let's all be jolly."
At school we're not quite sure of "Al." It was reported
that she was once discovered peacefully napping in the Day
Students' room, but we have never seen her when she wasn't
right "up on her toes."
We have our suspicions as to the way she spends her sum-
mer vacations because in September her sun tan turns us all
green with envy.
HELEN EILEEN O'HALLORAN
490 Broad Street, East Weymouth. W. A. A. 3.
"She that was fair and never proud,
Had tongue at will and yet not loud."
We suggest a new activity for W. A. A. — horsebacking,
so that Helen may have a chance to demonstrate that ability
she acquired at the Normal School in Johnson, Vermont.
NATALIE VIOLET PETERSON
East Brewster. W. A. A. 1, 2, 3. Scouts 2.
Topics of the Day Club 3. Hobby Club 3.
"True as the needle to the pole,
Or as the dial to the sun."
We wonder if all Cape-Codders are like Nat and as easily
distinguished by their walk. Does it register? Nat is a
living proof that a head in the air does not denote conceit;
she is just facing the world with her chin up.
MARY AGNES RALEIGH
749 Montello St., Brockton. Orchestra 2, 3.
"Of all those arts in which the wise excel,
Nature's chief masterpiece is talking well."
Mary and her violin are closely associated in the minds of
all who know her. B5 was very happy to welcome her to its
membership last year when she decided upon teaching in
place of her musical career which she had been pursuing pre-
viously. We all ask, "Is there any subject upon which Mary
can not shed enlightenment?" And how many hours a day
does she devote to the perusal of the dictionary?
MIRIAM ELIZABETH ROBERTS
44 Concord Street, Rockland. Hockey 1, 2, 3.
Baseball 2. W. A. A. 1, 2, 3. Soccer 2.
'All compliments to her are trite."
Mim is another of those moderns who can successfully
combine scholarship and athletics without diminishing by
one particle her capacity for social enjoyment. Her many
trips, or perhaps we should say balks, in "O'le Chief Pontiac"
have made her quite well known about school.
RUTH BERNADINE SHEA
398 Plain Street, Rockland. W. A. A. 3. Day
Student Council 1.
'"Twas her thinking of others made you think of
We all know and appreciate the fact that Ruth is an opti-
mist whose motto seems to be, "Never trouble trouble 'till
trouble troubles you". But do we always stop to think of
how often she goes out of her way to assume the troubles of
SIGNE SELINDA SIITONEN
89 Broadway Street, Quincy. Choir 3. Hock-
ey 1, 2, 3. Baseball 1, 2, 3.
"She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And the law of kindness is on her tongue."
Smiling "Sig" Siitonen! She simply captivates our hearts
with her sunny smile and sweet soprano. The natives of
Nantucket used good judgment in naming her "Bubbles" as
did Miss Moffitt in calling her "a little ray of sunshine". As
a sunshine spreader she surely heads the list — except when you
question her as to her middle name. "What's in a name, 'Sig'?"
ETHEL WESTON SMITH
Main Street, South Hanson. W. A. A. 3.
"Her presence lends its warmth and cheer
To all who come before it."
Ethel is a comfortable person to have around. She has her
troubles like us all but they check her cheery nature only
temporarily. Soon the quick smile is flashing and somehow
everyone's troubles have disappeared.
HARRIET LUCILLE SMITH
927 High Street, Fall River. W. A. A.
Baseball 2. Day Student Council 1, 2.
"Her ways are those of pleasantness, and all her
paths are peace."
Don't you like people who are different? Chum with
Harriet. Charming? Yes, but not in the "prosy" sense.
She so radiates gentleness that you suddenly realize that she
has quietly slipped into your closest circle of friends.
RUTH OLGA SWANSON
10 First Street, Brockton. W. A. A. 1, 2, 3.
Science Club 1. Kindergarten-Primary 2, 3,
"Not too serious, — Not too gay
We love her for her smile — her look — her way."
There's a wicked twinkle in her eye when she announces
softly that a test is in the air. We know she's teasing but
we do get excited and then how she laughs, the minx.
MILDRED AURELIA TILTON
Skiff Avenue, Vineyard Haven. W. A. A. 1, 2,
3. Basketball 1, 2. Volley Ball 2. Glee Club
3. Topics-of-the-Day 3.
"I never knew her loveliness
Until she smiled on me."
Silence is most audible in Mildred's corner and yet when
she speaks, her husky tones shatter it meaningfully. Her
pleasure is in sports, music, and a good time, while her dis-
likes are negligible in number, but decided. Ask her about
slow-moving Cape trains if you don't believe it!
MARGARET DORIS VICKERS
437 Prescott Street, New Bedford. W. A. A.
1, 2, 3. Garden Club 2, 3. Scouts 1. Basket-
ball 1. Hobby Club 2.
"Forget not yet the tried intent
Of such a truth as I have meant."
The popularity of Margaret is self-evident at the beginning
of class. The secret now we may tell, — she inevitably carries
an extra supply of writing materials for the members of the
class who just about arrive with the bell.
MAE SYLVIA WILSON
186 Oakland Avenue, Methuen. W. A. A.
1, 2, 3. Hockey 1, 2, 3. Baseball 1, 2.
"I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere."
Mae is a maid of many arts. In the summer she "waits"
and in the winter she "goes". Her dramatization of an Indian
lover is to be remembered as well as her famous family stories.

THE SYMBOLISM OF THE SCHOOL SEAL
The lighted tower on the Administration Building is an emblem invariably associated
with Bridgewater by those acquainted with the College. Its cheery brightness was more
welcome and striking than ever one winter night as I was waiting in the cold for the auto-
mobile in which I commute to school. Its clear, shining rays seemed to represent all that
Bridgewater offers of guidance and leadership.
Thus it came to me, the thought of using that lighted tower on the school seal as sym-
bolic of our College. Doris Wit.d
. Mary Campbell
Upon returning to Bridgewater Teachers College last fall as sophomores, we discovered
that our responsibilities had increased. It now became our time-honored duty and sacred
privilege to entertain and educate in part, the incoming class. Committees were organized
and initiation was carried through successfully, with no harm done.
When the freshmen were thus properly installed, our attention was focused upon the
planning and executing of the annual Sophomore Social. Continuing as social creatures,
we joined with the Juniors in giving the Sophomore-Junior Prom in January. It was
declared a social and financial success.
Not the least of our surmounted problems, for most of us at least, was the pleasant pass-
ing of six weeks of intensive study in the training school. With this — may we call it bap-
tismal? — training, we advanced a bit further in the teaching profession to prepare us for
the path that lies ahead of us here at College.
Plenty of participation in extra-curricular activities has prevented us from keeping our
noses to the grindstone too much.

The upperclassmen had a way of initiating us, the class of 1936, so there was no mis-
taking the fact that we were freshmen.
Very early in the year we had an opportunity to meet everyone at the Acquaintance
Social. A little later, we had a freshman party which was quite successful. Almost every-
one in the class attended and met one another informally.
In the fall the men had a sack race while the girls participated in the Freshmen Olympics
for their part in the sports.
Under Miss Pope's leadership the usual round of freshman teas was given in the Library
during Book Week.
Class elections were held in December. The leaders chosen were given the oppor-
tunity to exercise their executive and creative abilities in planning the Freshman Social,
held on St. Patrick's Day. How appropriate!
Have you noticed how many freshmen have taken part in chapel programs this year?
This augurs well for the future participation of our class in college activities. We'll prove
that "Green means Growth"!

THREE DARK PINES
Three dark pines against the sky,
In sunset lights a silhouette.
Three dark pines upon the heights,
A common sight, and yet-
Stately boughs outlined,
An awesome spectacle to see;
Wind-blown and storm-tossed,
Yet strong, enduring, as the sea,
Their heads up-held in pride.
Thus privileged to stand
And gaze, unbent by storm
As sentinels, out o'er the land.

THE STUDENT CO-OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION
The Student Co-operative Association is the largest and most important organization
in the school. Every student who enters the school automatically becomes a member of this
Its purpose is to regulate all matters pertaining to student life which do not fall under
the jurisdiction of the faculty, to promote a spirit of unity among the students of the school
in every way possible, and to continue to maintain the high standards of Bridgewater Nor-
mal School in Bridgewater Teachers College. This purpose is carried out through the work
of the various councils. The Student Council is the greatest force, its membership being
truly representative, for it is composed of men and women, day and dormitory students,
classes and divisions of classes.
It is this group that tries to improve the life of the school by keeping abreast with all
new movements in student collegiate life and adapting the best of these to our own college
Meetings are held on the first Friday of every month, and regular attendance is re-
quired in order that the work may be efficiently carried on.
This year the council has been able to place a large bulletin board outside the auditorium,
on which space is provided for W. A. A., Clubs, Notes of Interest to All, Posters, and Men's
Activities. It has also purchased a silver tea service for the school, and has been able to
help clubs financially.
Because of the change in the name of the school, it has been necessary to have a new seal
and a new song; and in order to give an equal opportunity to each student who had some
suggestions for either a song or a seal, the council held contests and offered a prize to the
winner of the seal contest.
In order that the students may be more interested in Campus Comment, the council
has voted to send a delegate from the student body to the Scholastic Press Association which
will meet in New York, in March. The council has also voted to send the President and
Vice-President-elect of Student Council and a representative of the men to the conferences
held by the Eastern States Association in New York, in April.

Dormitory Council is the organization whose duty it is to regulate and supervise student
life in the dormitories.
Its first task of the year was meeting the Freshmen and helping them to become ac-
quainted. In this we were aided by the "Big Sisters", who were most helpful and cooper-
It has been one of the Council's aims to provide for more informal social gatherings,
especially on weekends. This work was begun very early in the year. Such games as
parchesi, checkers, and backgammon were purchased and informal parties have been held
in Normal Reception Room on Saturday evenings directly after dinner. These have been
extremely popular and well attended.
Dormitory Council also conceived the idea of having demi-tasse served in the Reception
Room Sunday noon. With the cooperation of Mrs. Bixby we have carried out this idea.
We have been able to use the new pewter coffee set, with senior girls acting as pourers.
Because of the funds raised by a movie benefit and various sales, we have been able to
add to the furnishings of Normal Reception Room.
The weekends of the Graduates' Conference and of Open House were unusually success-
ful. The tea held in Normal Reception Room for the Open House guests gave an oppor-
tunity for the families of the students to meet the faculty.
For the remainder of this year, our attention has been devoted to smoothing out other
Social Activities Committee has endeavored to provide a complete and varied program
in order that the student body might have ample time for social diversions at college. It
has also tried to foster a spirit of genuine friendliness among the students by giving them
opportunity to meet informally. Dormitory and day students alike enjoy the activities
arranged by the committee.
For a more detailed account of the work of this organization, we refer you to the social
calendar on another page.

For the first time in the history of Bridgewater, Day and Dormitory Students were
about equal in number this year. That has meant a crowding of tables and chairs in the
Commuters' dining room; but cheerfulness and a comradely spirit have helped bridge the
difficulty, even though the overflow found nothing but stools or barren folding chairs in the
domestic science room.
There has been a special effort made this year to decorate the dining room, to relieve
the bareness of the walls. The junior class in design undertook the task. With a color
scheme suggested by the wall-hanging at one end of the room, they designed attractive
paper mache bowls and platters brightening up the space considerably. It is hoped in
time that there will be a "cozy corner" with a magazine and newspaper rack. The Day
Students' Social was a gala circus affair this year, with a parade, freaks, pink lemonade, ice
cream cones, and all the rest of it. We never have found out yet who was under that
To make the year even more distinctive, a tea was given by the freshmen at which the
commuters, and their mothers and friends, were the invited guests.

CULTURE FUND REPORT
With the inauguration of the Budget System formed to insure financial support of student
activities, it seemed in keeping with the educational interests of this institution to provide
some form of purely cultural activity. The selection rests with a committee composed of
representatives of the student body and members of the faculty. The committee aims to
present lecture programs during the year which will be of cultural value to the faculty and
Each year shows an added interest and satisfaction in what is presented, and the com-
mittee truly feels that this year has been no exception. In as many of the selections as
possible, the aim has been to enlarge the cultural value of some specific department in this
As our first speaker, we chose Mrs. Katherine Osborne, director of the Students' Union,
in Boston. Mrs. Osborne has traveled all over the world, and has many fine collections
of varied nature. Her title, "How to Make a Library without Money or Books," was
descriptive of this unique and interesting lecture. An authority on paper, she brought with
her samples of books from London book stalls, and most intriguing books made by herself
in the style of the Chinese. Who would believe that such lovely Chinese paper existed,
for so small a cost! Her collections of clippings, many of them rare and valuable because
the material can not be procured in book form, roused much enthusiasm for this hobby.
Dr. Harlow Shapley, director of the Harvard Observatory since 1921, next addressed
us on "New Developments in the Exploration of the Universe." A recognized leader in
the field of science, he showed us that the changes brought about by time in the past, and
those to take place in the future, mean changes in life and living.
Music was represented by Mr. Rulon Robison, a noted Boston tenor, and by a program
of Chinese music. All appreciated the delightful informality of Mr. Robison's program,
the numbers of which Mr. Robison himself presented.
Biography as a current, living, human experience was the central theme of an address
by Dr. Harold E. B. Speight, Head of the Department of Biography, Dartmouth College.
The title of his address was "The Making of some Great Men of Our Times." Born in
England, educated in the Universities of Aberdeen and Oxford, Dr. Speight became a citi-
zen of the United States, and served as chaplain in the war in France. Prominent per-
sonalities, primarily as they were made rather than born, were treated by Dr. Speight with
sympathetic understanding. As members of a teacher-training institution, we especially
felt the value of his final message: the potential power of every teacher, and the responsi-
bility assumed, for shaping the personality of the individual.
In February, we were especially fortunate in securing Dr. Edward Howard Griggs, of
New York, one of the most popular and forceful lecturers on the American platform to-day.
At present he is president of the Department of Philosophy at the Brooklyn Institute of
Arts and Sciences. His deep, rich learning has been devoted to many subjects, and the
highest faith and idealism were echoed to us in his lecture on "Friendship, Love, and Mar-
In order to round out its program, Culture Fund will select for the remainder of the
year lectures on Art and Current Events.
We of the committee feel that the work had been successful, in that each presentation
met its cultural aims. We wish for next year's committee the success and improvement
which we know comes with a progressive institution.
President . . . Mildred MacDonald
Vice-Pres Evelyn Biscoe
Secretary Grace Knox
Treasurer Marian Collins
The work so well started by last year's President, Sadie Gould, has been carried forward
successfully by Mildred MacDonald.
At the beginning of the year, House Board outlined its plans for raising money, and by
means of various sales, amateur nights, and movie benefits, the treasury has been increased.
Woodward Reception Room and Recreation Room have been and probably still will be,
the centers for various improvements.
The kitchenette has been a great source of pleasure to the girls and its popularity can
easily be seen by the clamoring for it, especially on week-ends. It is hoped that by the end
of June, additional facilities will allow more girls to make use of it.
Many a spread has been made pleasanter with the aid of the kitchenette, and we hesitate
to estimate how many birthday parties have originated there.
With a very enjoyable year behind us, House Board extends its best wishes for a pros-
perous and successful new year.

At the end of an interesting and enjoyable year, we, the students of Normal Hall, pause
a moment in our busy life to take account of stock.
We offer the following inventory of our activities and accomplishments for the year.
The reception room, where we held our merry Hallowe'en and Christmas parties, has
been improved by the addition of several pieces of furniture. Speaking of Hallowe'en
parties — will you ever forget the afternoon we spent down in Irma's room digging out pump-
People have wondered where we got the Santa that guarded our door during the Christ-
mas season. The credit is due to the Freshmen — just another example of the old Normal
The last half of the year found Normal Hall setting the fashion. How? It became the
style to keep health rules; and since the majority of our girls joined the ranks of this much
approved brigade, we set the pace for the other dormitories. The profit we have gained
from this last activity gives us tremendous enthusiasm to begin in the fall at the point where
we have to stop in June.
We may be the little dormitory, but we have high ambitions!
This year we were glad to welcome five freshmen and a lone sophomore to our group.
Although we lack the presence of mighty seniors, we function well under the leadership of
our president and our house mother, Miss Henderson — and seem to lack no dignity!
We feel proud to have added to our household equipment a set of dishes, silver, and a
bridge lamp. But this is only a beginning.
Behind us we have the memories of Freshman Initiation, which now affords as much
amusement to the freshmen as to the upperclassmen, our Depression Social, and many
merry gatherings — a source of much delight! Before us we have the hope of other happy
and successful times.
Next year will find our small group practically intact and so we look forward to a con-
tinuation of all the friendships of this year and the welcoming of a few more members to
EXPLANATION OF THE DECORATIONS IN THE ALPHA
Since our year book, formerly known as Normal Offering, was the first ever published
by any normal school, and since this is our first full year as a college, we have tried to express
the "pioneering" spirit throughout the art of the Alpha. This time we are pioneers in the
modern world of nineteen hundred thirty-three.
The illustration for "Classes" typifies co-education and particularly emphasizes the
use of modern apparatus as a phase of the new education.
The co-operation necessary in the building up and maintaining of an organization like
"Student Co-operation Association" is symbolized by the construction of a skyscraper.
Strength, too, is suggested by those steel girders.
On the page for "Organizations" an airplane, representative of the machinery to-day,
is used to demonstrate a unit, the parts of which work together in absolute synchronization.
The element of speed, common to present day vehicles, is contrasted with the emblem of
Bellerophon and Pegasus, shown in the background.
Unusual modern book covers suggest the design for the "Literature" cut.
In this way a unified whole has been achieved by exemplifying the pioneering spirit in
It is with much sincere appreciation that the Alpha Staff wishes to thank all those who
have made the work of the yearbook so pleasant a task and so enjoyable an experience.
We are particularly grateful to the faculty advisors for their unfailing helpfulness, —
and especially, to Miss Ruth Davis, whose past experience in yearbook work has been so
generously expended for our benefit.

To create a little that is literature; a little that is lasting; a little, gay; a little, useful;
a whole that is interesting, is the policy of Campus Comment. Throughout the year a
competitively-selected group has tried to give practical form to such a theory.
In addition to the regular newspaper work the board has this year tried to perfect the
details of the new system of selection by competition. It is their hope to create for the com-
ing year an efficient self-possessed board, armed with an invincible oracle-like constitution.
The ultimate aim is a "carry-over" of experience and an eventual marked progress.

Dramatic Club feels very grateful to the faculty and students for their co-operation dur-
ing the past year. The club acknowledges more than ever the helpful, inspiring leadership
of Miss Adelaide Moffitt.
Valuable meetings, interesting projects, and outstanding guests have all contributed
to the success which Library Club has enjoyed this year.
We planned our programs to fulfill our belief that books and people are an ideal combi-
nation. Accordingly, you might have found us at one time deeply interested in Hans Ander-
sen and his immortal fairy tales, or again listening intently to a serious debate on the relative
merits of older and modern writers.
The club has served the college in several ways. Two of our members have taken charge
of the reference library in the gymnasium, and others took the responsibility of writing the
book column each month for Campus Comment. Most closely associated with the club
itself is the lending library in Miss Carter's classroom. This year we have added several
new popular books to our circulation; among them are "Invitation to the Waltz" by Rosa-
mund Lehmann whose "Dusty Answer" created such comment, O'Neill's "Nine Plays",
and "Maid in Waiting" by Galsworthy.
As our chapel speaker we had the privilege of presenting Miss Katherine Dewey,
teacher of art in the Brush Hill School in Milton, and illustrator of many books. From her
we learned of the technicalities of illustrating, of the tremendous amount of research neces-
sary for even the most simple illustration, and had the pleasure of seeing original drawings
of her own.
At the close of this, another year of purposeful activity, Library Club hands on its torch
of service to next year's members.

Judging from the circulation of the Lending Library, pleasure reading is one of the most
popular hobbies among the students of our college. That there is much discrimination
in this broad field is evident from the choice of books that are always out or seldom taken
from the shelves.
In general, the students prefer modern fiction, and are especially attracted to the books
secured from the Book-of-the-Month Club. The arrival of one of these books is announced
by its display in the library, with a notice to the students and a sign-up sheet. After several
days it goes into active service, reaching the students in the order in which they signed.
When all have had the book it is replaced on the shelves and ready for other patrons.
This year there are three books which have been in great demand. Although the "Good
Earth" by Pearl S. Buck was featured for last year, its popularity has not waned, for there
is a continual waiting list for it.
A volume of nine plays by Eugene O'Neill, selected as his own favorites, has had a most
enthusiastic public. Innumerable students have echoed the pulsations of "Strange Inter-
lude", and have sat tense while reading "Mourning Becomes Electra", "The Hairy Ape",
or "Emperor Jones".
And third, only because it was a late addition, comes "Ann Vickers", by Sinclair Lewis.
No doubt curiosity has tempted many to read it, but they have finished the last page with
the almost unanimous statement that the story was beautiful and terrible, compassionate
and true. Ann Vickers portrays the modern American woman, the business woman, the
social worker, the successful feminist, who in the last thirty years has lived a century in
the history of women.
Yes, the lending library has modern books as well as the classics for literature courses.
LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
. R. McKee
Au mois de septembre le Cercle Francais commenca l'annee en celebrant vivement
l'occasion de son pique-nique annuel sur les bords du lac de Carver. En octobre le Cercle
choisit comme but de l'annee, "Mieux connaitre les Francais". Le programme de l'annee
fut organise la dessus.
A la seance d'initiation des neuf nouveaux membres, Mile. Dolores Rousseau, une
ancienne tresoriere du Cercle, fut notre conferenciere. Elle nous parla d'une facon en-
thousiaste de ses experiences comme etudiante a. 1'universite de Paris pendant l'annee passee.
Des programmes dramatiques et musicaux offrirent l'occasion de "nous instruire en
nous amusant." Parmi eux il y a a. noter "Romeo et Juliette" ou quelques cantatrices du
Cercle firent leur debut musical. M. Hubbard, diplome de Bates College, nous resuma
d'une facon interessante l'opera bouffon, "Cyrano de Bergerac"; Mile. Laramee prit la

TOPICS OF THE DAY CLUB
Topics of the Day Club celebrated its first anniversary this year. It has grown from a
nucleus of about fifteen members — mcst of whom were of the dissolved Pro and Con club —
to a grand total of fifty.
This year has been one fruitful in knowledge for participants in the club meetings. Its
members are well versed in current problems. The Sino-Japanese situation, the Indian
problem, the question of War Debts, and Fascism are only a few subjects which we have
attacked and tried to understand. We, too, like so many others, were bitten by that new
bug, Technocracy, but fortunately survived the disease without any harmful effects.
The club affords an excellent opportunity to air one's pet ideas, and yet to retain one's
"open-mindedness," a sign of genuine interest in the subjects discussed.

The Bridgewater Lyceum, though founded for the purpose of encouraging informal
debating among the men of the college, has many interesting side lines. Informal group
discussions of current events and talks add much to the interest of the meetings as well as
giving instruction. Among the various subjects discussed by our own members have been
"Russia", "Nova Scotia", and that new and perplexing problem of "Technocracy". After
the presentation of the topic, there is a general discussion, during which we profit by each
other's knowledge by means of the free interchange of ideas.
This year we have had as our guests various professional and business men who have
spoken to us on subjects in which they were particularly interested. One of the most in-
teresting talks presented was one given by Mr. Durgin. He spoke in his inimitable way
on the "World War and its Effects."
We feel that we have by no means exhausted the wealth of possible topics and challenge
next year's group to further explore them.

Men's Club started off with a bang this year. An enthusiastic "esprit de corps" com-
bined with the fortunate choice of Bill Johnson for president assured the club of a banner
First came the successful presentation of the show of shows — "The Follies of 1933".
This was followed by a Christmas party, given to the Americanization Class at the Bridge-
water High School. We were also of practical service by contributing to the Welfare
Society of the town.
"And Billy Disappeared", a four-act mystery play, marked our second attempt at drama-
tics. Who can still believe that the leopard doesn't change his spots, after the way the men
impersonated women that evening?
Our annual visit to a near-by State Institution — in the capacity of entertainers! — cer-
tainly was appreciated. Chalk up another score for Bill!
Every month, meetings of the organization were held in the men's room in Normal Hall
for which interesting and worth while programs were arranged. Of special interest were
representatives from the three major political parties who conducted a forum just before
The addition of a radio has made the club room a much more sociable place where com-
muters and dormitory men regularly congregate.
The following paragraph was written by the sixth grade pupils in our Training School
in memory of Dr. Boyden:
"We were very sorry to hear of the death of Dr. Boyden. He had a young heart, and
loved all boys and girls. We feel we have lost one of our best friends."
The main feature of the Science Club for the year has been the use of materials which
aid in the visual and practical teaching of science rather than in the theoretical. This aim
has been accomplished by making charts to assist in science work, by taking field trips, and
by showing suitable films.
Although the educational side has been stressed, the social end of club activity has not
been neglected. Each member has ended the year with the feeling that he has meant some-
thing to the club and that the club has helped him to acquire a greater interest in science,
a better understanding of its value, and many helpful hints along the way to be used when
he starts "his own" science club.

Acting President .
This year Garden Club has endeavored to carry out an extensive and varied program
which would prove both interesting and instructive.
At the meetings held on alternate Thursdays a short business meeting was first conducted
after which a talk was given by some member. Any phase of garden work could be pre-
sented, so the range of subjects was a wide one. In the fall and winter months, time was
provided for making cuttings and planting bulbs which were taken home when they had
matured. In the spring this time was spent doing work in the garden.
For our chapel program, we had as our guest Mr. Talbot, field agent of the Massachu-
setts Audubon Society, who gave an illustrated lecture on "The Protection of Birds". In
February, four members of the club presented a program showing the legendary background
of the tulip, narcissus, laurel, and mistletoe. Four tableaux illustrating their legendary
character were included.
Besides our regular meetings, we have enjoyed several bonfire suppers in the garden
and trips to Woods' Hole and the Blue Hills. Our social was conducted on even a bigger
and better scale than those in past years.
We have enjoyed our work this year and without question much of our success can be
attributed to our faculty adviser and fellow-worker — Mr. Stearns.

HOW PLANTS GET THEIR NAMES
The romance of plant names has fascinated generations of herbalists, botanists and
gardeners. It is quite as pleasant to know the origin and meaning of plant names as it is
to recognize friends by name and to know their relationships and nationalities.
Names of plants are derived from several sources: from the use of the plant, from the
growing conditions, from religion, from animals with relation to their use, from men who
discovered the plants in a strange part of the world, from countries, and very often from
gardeners who have given them fanciful names without end.
A most amusing story deals with the origin of the name "hawthorn". It was character-
istic of landscape architecture in the days of "Capability" Brown to have long stretches of
undulating lawns reaching to the house. On these lawns flocks of sheep were allowed to
graze inasmuch as lawn mowers had not been invented. It was considered rather pleasant
to have sheep wandering about on the lawn as it added to the scenery, but it was not de-
sirable to have them stray upon the porches of houses; hence a sunken fence was devised
some distance from the house. Because this sunken fence was hidden, a stroller would
come upon it unaware and perhaps exclaim "ha! ha!" Since then the proper name for one
of these sunken fences has been "haha". Then it was decided to have some sort of hedge
planted at the bottom of this trench, and the plant chosen was ideally a thorny one. Hence
the English native shrub used for this purpose was called the Haha Thorn, which was easily
corrupted to our hawthorn.
Many other stories such as this might be told to show how we obtain the delightful names
forget-me-not, butter-cup, snowdrop, and mignonette (little darling); best of all is "pansy"
from the French "pensee" meaning "thought". There is much simple pleasure to be found
in knowing the names we give plants because we like them.
The stress of modern life necessitates everyone's having a hobby. So say our human-
nature experts. At Bridgewater, Hobby Club is the answer to such a statement. To be
sure this club is one of the newest, but already its influence has been felt by the whole school;
and its members have received enlightenment on a great variety of unique studies. Do
you know how the postal system came about; that every type of seashell has a name and
history; that "My Old Kentucky Home" was written about a particular house; or that the
most expensive stamp in the world is the only one of its kind and is worth $50,000? In
this its second year, Hobby Club has grown both in membership and prestige. May the
years to come see it more outstanding and helpful to the college.

(to be sung by all)
Oh, Hobby Club, we sing of you
For much we've learned from thee,
We have a hobby and we know
That life is more worth-while.
We work, we play, are always gay
Just listen, world, to us,
If you would always happy be
Take heed of what we sing.
Oh, have a hobby, hobby, hobby, hobby,
Have a hobby, hobby, it's lots of fun, oh do.
The stamp group of Hobby Club
With Mr. Stearns to lead,
A lot has learned of stamps from him,
From one another too.
We sort our stamps and talk them o'er
And all about them read.
Postmarks we do also collect
From places far and near.
Of poetry, we're very fond
As you can easily see,
HOBBY CLUB SONG
We read the poems both old and new
When we have time that's free.
We watch, we wait, are always glad
When Monday comes around
For then it is we enjoy ourselves
By reading poetry.
Of the nature group, to thee we sing
Loyal members of the club,
We pledge our service and our time
In all natural things.
Birds, flowers, and trees,
Stars, moths and bees
In fact we think it's fine
To further learning in our schools
Through meadow, field, and brook.
We are the miscellaneous group
All things we do collect
From autographs to pottery
And souvenirs and leaves
Soap carving represents our art
Interior decorating, too,
Odd names another hobby is
Collect all things we do.
It was easy this year for Camera Club to find people interested in "kodaking as they
go" to fill the places of those who graduated in June.
The fundamentals of developing and printing having been mastered, we turned to new
fields. Whenever an interesting exhibit or unique project was to be found anywhere about
the school, you might well have expected to see a member of the Club busily adjusting his
camera preparatory to taking a picture.
The Club also finds much pleasure in supplying the students of the College with pictures
of gymnasium, the campus, sport groups, and dormitory rooms, for the all-important "mem"
One of the most interested and most co-operative club members is our friend and adviser,

THROUGH A STUDENT'S EYES
Through constant contact with a person one cannot fail to gain impressions of him. I
am sure, therefore, that everyone who has listened to Dr. Boyden's talks in Chapel has been
impressed by some thought which unconsciously revealed something of the personality
and interests of the speaker.
I think, first of all, what impressed students, especially freshmen, was the pleasant, eager
spirit of friendliness which was so vital a part of Dr. Boyden. What student in thinking
of our President does not recall his generous smiles and infectious chuckles?
From his Wednesday morning talks I realized how intensely interested in education Dr.
Boyden was. He stressed the fact that standards are every day becoming higher, and con-
sequently there will be room only for those students who are at the top. In his constant
urgent appeal to everyone to make the most of his opportunity, Dr. Boyden has been a truly
successful inspiration to the embryonic teachers of Bridgewater.
Girl Scouting was first started at Bridgewater in 1921 and has since held a prominent
place in the extra-curricula activities of our students. This year we tried to add to the
"glories of the past" as well as carry on the work which had already been started.
We were extremely fortunate in securing as our Councillor Miss Lucy B. Braley of the
Training School. Her energy and enthusiasm have been a constant source of helpfulness
to us all in carrying out our program.
In the fall a Supper Hike afforded an opportunity for completing the tests of Fire Light-
ing and Trail Making. At our Thursday night meetings we learned Morse Code Signaling
and passed other tests for Second and First Class Rank. Under the supervision of Miss
Mary I. Caldwell of the Physical Education Department we had an interesting course for
the Athlete Merit Badge.
Girl Scouting helps us to develop initiative and resourcefulness by providing an oppor-
tunity to work individually on many different tests and proficiency badges such as Health
Winner, Musician, Scribe, Junior Citizen, and Craftsman. In this work we have received
much willing co-operation from Miss Caldwell, Miss Rand, Miss Davis, Miss Beckwith,
and Mr. Arnold in their respective fields.
Elinor Meyer, Olive Brittan, and Emily S. Bates attended a Girl Scout Leadership
Training Course given by Miss Elizabeth Fiske, Director of Girl Scouts in Brockton, Mass.
Miss Fiske kindly consented to address the student body in our chapel program March 28.
Candidate Scouts were invested as Tenderfoot Scouts by Miss S. Elizabeth Pope, Dean
of Women. We wish to thank Miss Pope for her interest and co-operation in making this
year a success.
Each year the Scouts have engaged in some profitable enterprise. This year we gave a
Movie Benefit which proved a social as well as a financial success.
We set a new standard in Scouting at Bridgewater by attending the annual State Re-
view. With Miss Iva Lutz and Miss S. E. Pope as guests we witnessed and participated
in the biggest event of the year in Scouting in Massachusetts.
As a climax to our activities we held a Court of Awards at which badges were awarded
for work completed during the year. It has been our aim to have every Candidate become a
Tenderfoot Scout, every tenderfoot become a Second Class Scout, every Second Class Scout
attain the rank of First Class, and every First Class Scout earn Proficiency Merit Badges.

The following paragraph was written by the sixth grade children in our Training School
in memory of Dr. Boyden :
"We all wanted to bring pennies for flowers for Dr. Boyden, and were glad, too, that they
were a comfort to Mrs. Boyden. We shall remember Dr. Boyden a long time, and it will
seem strange not to see him when we have our Memorial Day and Graduation exercises,
and when we get our posture badges. We think that if each one of us tried to make as much
of our life as he did of his, people would respect and honor us."
Kindergarten Primary Club opened the year's events in October, with a Hallowe'en
party for the new members. In November, two of our members were sent as delegates
to the convention of the Massachusetts State Kindergarten Association at Newton. The
November and December meetings were largely devoted to making and repairing Christmas
gifts for the needy children of the town. On December 15th, a Christmas celebration was
The club entertained the following speakers during the year:
January; Mrs. French, Supervisor of Kindergartens in New Bedford.
February; Speakers from the National Dairy Food Council, Boston, Mass.
March; Miss Sophie Butler, Kindergarten of the Baldwin School in Brookline, Mass.
April; Miss Frances Tredick, President of the Massachusetts State Kindergarten
Other phases of the year's program were the reading of educational books, and the aid-
ing of handicapped children of the town.
The program closed with the annual banquet in May at which time Miss Wheelock of
the Wheelock Kindergarten School was guest speaker.

No time was lost this last Fall in getting started, for the Glee Club had a year's work
ahead of it. Try-outs were held to refill those vacancies caused by graduation.
The club had its first appearance in October at the Plymouth County Teachers' Con-
vention, and repeated its success of the year before. Following the usual custom, the Glee
Club led the school in singing carols at the Christmas dinner, and after the faculty reception
in the gymnasium, went down to Dr. Boyden's house for the annual carol sing, at his door-
Then work began in earnest, for the spring concert was not far off when one reckoned by
weeks. Assisted by a distinguished guest artist, the girls enjoyed their concert as much
as did the audience. With graduation looming ahead, the music for Baccalaureate and
Commencement exercises replaced Bach and Brahms and John Ireland.
At the end of this well-rounded year's work, there is regret at the loss of those members
who are graduating, and high hope for another year of singing comradeship.

The choir gives no social in the gym, displays no posters, and makes no chapel announce-
ments, yet it is one of the integral parts of extra-curricula activity. It is representative
of the entire student body since any commuter or dormitory girl may try for membership
regardless of whether or not she belongs to glee club. By sharing its talent with the stu-
dents every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, when it furnishes the music for chapel, this
group proves itself a worthwhile organization.
L. Victor Milici
John S. Bates
The Men's Glee Club is not the possessor of a historical background of prestige and
tradition, for no organization of that name existed in Bridgewater Normal School before
1923. When it was formed, it was only for a short time, for seven years ago the group was
compelled to disband. Not until last year, when our institution became a Teachers College,
was the club formed again.
Each of the men's classes had its quota of musical talent, but the class of 1935 was par-
ticularly blessed with harmonious voices. Mainly through the efforts of this class the
organization took on new life and presented a fine concert in May of 1932 under the guidance
of Miss Rand.
Interest among the men has increased, so that prospects for our April concert this year
appear bright. We are receiving full support from the student body. All plans are being
carried out in a capable manner by our president, Milici.
The Men's Quartette has proved to be an excellent drawing card at socials. We are
fortunate also in having on our roll call an eminent soloist, Ralph Creedon.
We feel some of the success of our club may be attributed to the hearty support received
from the student body.

We welcomed many new members into our group this year which necessitated our re-
moval from the Music Room to the Auditorium for our rehearsals. Our year's work was
centered around Schubert's "Unfinished Symphony", the main feature of our concert which
took place March 10, with George Abercrombie, Pianist, assisting as guest artist. We have
assisted the Dramatic Clubs during their various productions this year, as well as playing
for the student body during a Chapel period in February.
Although the orchestra is not a social organization, we find real enjoyment in playing
together simply for the love of music. Our long evening rehearsals which preceded the
concert were often broken up by a tasty mint to gain energy for more and deeper thought.
We have all found great joy in music work this year which has been carried on, as usual,
under the able direction of Miss Rand, whose untiring efforts and inspiration have been so

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
W. A. A.'s initial year as a club in the Teachers College at Bridgewater was also its
tenth anniversary, and one hundred percent membership was pledged in the freshman class.
This was the result of an energetic membership drive launched by W. A. A. representatives.
At the fall meeting, health rules occupied a conspicuous place, when a student from Bates
College, Maine, presented the views of her fellow students on the subject. Under the direc-
tion of Eleanor Meyer health rules were very much improved and were adopted by a large
percent of the members.
Saturday mornings during the Fall saw the lower campus occupied by hockey and soccer
enthusiasts, for W. A. A. decided to come to the rescue of activity-seeking week-enders by
presenting a program of sports.
The revision of the constitution and point systems was completed, credit now being
given for special classes, and individual and team athletic participation.
The winter sports culminated in the season Meet, one feature of which was a contest
among divisions in the keeping of health rules. The climax of the meet was the distribution
of pin awards for W. A. A. activities.
Campus Carnival took the form of an English Festival this year, a may-pole and country
dancing adding gaiety and color to the scene.
A Health Week in the Spring replaced the usual Spring Meet and W. A. A. now took
inventory and found it had reason to celebrate its tenth birthday exuberantly. Not only
had it made intra-mural sports the accepted thing at our College, but through play-days
it had spread the doctrine to neighboring towns.
W. A. A. has added to its program yearly, till it now ranks among the first in the variety
of sports which it offers; and it has won the interest and admiration of many athletic asso-
ciations through its system of student coaching.

The N. A. A. Council, made up of officers of the organization and an elected repre-
sentative from each class, handled all the business of the association. It acted as the spon-
sor of the second annual Boys' Sports Day. Many of the schools in which our junior men
trained were represented, so that a good-sized group was present to take part in the new mass
games on the program.
Through the endeavors of the Council, the evening of February fourth found the gym
the scene of the N. A. A. formal dance. The men of the school and their guests literally
floated in a gondola through the streets of Venice to the tune of McCarty's Revelers. Since
the usual sports of basketball, baseball, and soccer have received their share of attention
we can conclude that N. A. A. has carried out a well-rounded program of athletic, and social

With a selected squad of high school stars, together with the returning varsity men,
we started our practice season late in November under the competent guidance of our Cap-
tain and Coach Eddie Welch. Without a doubt we faced a very tough schedule and here
is what Eddie and his boys did to it.
Before Christmas vacation, we had fallen before Rhode Island State and Clark Uni-
versity. After vacation our luck stayed the same and an exceptionally strong Farmington
team eked out a win over us. Then things changed ; we trounced Boston University, did a
job on Harvard Junior Varsity, continued the good work by beating Assumption College
at Worcester, and ended our home season by trimming Tufts. Our last outside game re-
sulted in a win for us when we trimmed the Newport Training College.
While the season was glorious in one respect it is certainly very sad in another. Why?
Because the one and only "Pest" Welch has played his last game for B. T. C. For four
years he has held spectators spellbound and has saved many a game for the college. For
the last two years he has been our Captain and Coach and if the team can find any two men
to fill his shoes, they should consider themselves fortunate. Still we must not forget that
other four-year veteran and runner-up in scoring honors, none other than George Lowder.
George was second only because Eddie Welch was on the same team. The rest of the team
was made up of Fred Bailey, a newcomer to the Senior ranks who proved to be the back-
bone of our defense, and Will Bradbury and Dan Kelly, both freshmen who made the first
squad. We cannot leave out that versatile junior, Joe Morey, who has consistently been
one of the best. This season is the last for Frank McMahon, Clifford Johnson, and Paul
Ford, who have played the role of first string subs in a manner worthy of the highest praise.

With a small but faithful squad which was coached by "Butch" Nardelli and Bob Nagle
we went through the season under many difficulties. We were again handicapped by the
lack of a good practice ground which is the only reason for our many defeats. However,
before we had played many games it was evident that we had developed a smooth passing
team that could take a beating gracefully. When posterity looks over our schedule and
notices our scores, I am afraid they will think we were a failure as a soccer team; but let
it be remembered that deep down in our hearts has been engraved that famous saying,
"It matters not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game."
The little goal-getting we did do this year was confined to "Bob" Nagle, veteran of
four years, and Jack Nolan, a newcomer to our ranks.
The alumni game of this year marked the last appearance of our team. It also drew
to a finish the career of George Lowder, one of the three men who has played four years,
Nardelli and Nagle being the other two. McMahon, Naverouskis, Milici, Clifford Johnson,
Ford, and Eddie Welch will also be among the missing when the next soccer season rolls around.
Dan Kelly has been elected to lead our team next year, and with nine members return-
ing, the school may look forward to a more successful season.

Fitchburg Teachers College by the score of three to one.
This year we are fortunate in having a schedule which would do honor to any college.
The returning veterans this year, Dudy Aherne, our captain and coach, together with such
stars as Eddie Welch, Joe Teeling, Joe Morey, Owen Kiernan, and many others were of
great assistance last season.
Our schedule for the coming season includes such college-caliber teams as:

Still the world in its grief had the thought

For a nation whose heart was his heart ;
With the task of his life well accomplished,
When all weary he needed to rest —
Then the Father above in His kindness
Called him home to those hills he loved best.

DR. ARTHUR CLARKE BOYDEN
APRIL 21, 1933
Address Delivered by Frank W. Wright
Deputy-Commissioner of Education
Horace Mann, whose spirit hovers over this and all similar institutions in our country,
closed his last public address, the baccalaureate sermon at Antioch College in June 1859,
with these words: "Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity."
Fitting indeed, are these words as we assemble to pay tribute to the memory of one
who carried forward the great work begun on this campus by Horace Mann nearly a century
ago. Arthur Clarke Boyden was a true exemplar of a great leader and a worthy successor
in the development of our State program of teacher training. A span of life of more than
four score years was allotted to him, and it was spent unselfishly in the service of the children
of Massachusetts. To him it was truly given to "win some victory for humanity."
The life and service of an institution are, in a very real sense, but the lengthened shadow
of those who have shared in the guiding of its destinies. Many hands and many minds
have united in the creation of this splendid school. Leading all the rest are father and son,
Albert G. Boyden and Arthur Clarke Boyden. Albert G. Boyden became principal of the
State Normal School at Bridgewater in 1860. He was succeeded in that capacity by his
son in 1906. This span of seventy-three years of leadership of a single institution by father
and son is probably unparalleled in the annals of American Education.
On March 15, at ten o'clock P. M., Arthur Clarke Boyden laid down what, in the most
literal sense, had been his life work. At his desk almost to the end, he gave himself un-
reservedly to this institution, and finished his work surrounded by the associations that
had been to him the breath of life itself. As was said by a friend: "He stepped off from the
summit, his laurels undiminished and his lights undimmed."
On the simple stone that marks the grave of Horace Mann in the Old North Burying
Ground in Providence is this inscription : "Whatever is excellent as God lives is permanent."
All about us, here and throughout the State, is the enduring evidence of the work of Dr.
Boyden; work that was to the last degree excellent, and, therefore, permanent in the
influence it exerted upon the thousands who were taught by him, and who, taught, and
teaching, tens of thousands of our children.
Since the founding of this institution, 7,562 persons have been graduated and have gone
out to exemplify its traditional service to the youth of the State that created and supports
it. Of these, 4,021 left Bridgewater during the administrative leadership of Dr. Boyden,
inspired with the zeal and devotion of a great teacher. Who can measure the span of his
influence, transmitted through four thousand sons and daughters of Bridgewater who sat
at his feet?
A graduate of Bridgewater thus appraised this influence: "Thousands of Bridgewater
graduates, when they think of Dr. Boyden, will instinctively recall him as a master teacher.
His quiet forcefulness, unfailing fairness, even disposition, keen sense of humor, and high
Christian character, all marked him as a great leader of men. It is as a teacher that we
love to think of him. For clear, logical organization of subject matter he was unmatched.
His mastery of his subject was absolute. One left his class with a new understanding of
what it means to be a true teacher, and with a firm resolve to emulate him. His former
students face their daily task with a surer purpose, a finer courage, and a greater devotion
because he was their teacher."
For more than sixteen years, I was privileged to come into the most intimate contact
with Dr. Boyden in his administration of this Teachers College. Never was there finer dem-
onstration of loyalty to a cause larger than, and outside, one's self. Bridgewater was his
loyalty and his life. In sunshine or in shadow, he held unswervingly to one purpose: the
welfare of this institution and its greater service to the State. A devastating fire left him
unshaken, and from the ashes of the old he was to see arise the new and greater Bridgewater
of which he dreamed and often spoke, and which he so much helped to build. When Dr.
Boyden became principal in 1906, the enrollment was 250. He lived to see this institution
grow to its present enrollment of 588. During his administration the courses were ex-
tended, the new plant erected, the name changed, and degrees first granted. "Look about
you for his monument", was never more aptly spoken of any man than of Arthur Clarke
Boyden, here and now.
One of his associates in the administration of our State Teachers Colleges aptly phrased
Dr. Boyden's more than a quarter of a century as principal and president when he said :
"I have had the opportunity to observe Dr. Boyden's relations with five different State
administrations and with his colleagues who have held positions as principals and presidents
of the normal schools and teachers colleges in Massachusetts. During this entire period,
his sound judgment, his wide background of experience, and his fine professional spirit made
for him a position of influence which we have all recognized. We admired and respected
him as a professional leader, and we loved him as a man."
"Not to be ministered unto, but to minister" is the motto of this institution engraved on a
bronze tablet as you enter its portals. Daily, as he came to his work, Dr. Boyden passed
beneath this silent and enduring statement of what was likewise his own mission in life.
In his talks to students from this platform, in his annual Sunday afternoon address to seniors
preceding graduation, in his beautifully interpretive reading of the morning lesson in daily
assembly there shone forth the deep religious nature of Dr. Boyden, and the ministering
spirit of the Great Teacher whom he devoutly followed.
As a life-long resident of the Town of Bridgewater, Dr. Boyden came to be its best-known
citizen. Unselfishly he gave of his time and energy to his town and to his church. Quiet
and unobtrusive in public demeanor, he was, nevertheless, readily enlisted in any good
cause. Boyden and Bridgewater — man, community and school — are almost synonymous
terms. For years to come, the naming of one will suggest the other.
Well do I remember his almost shy request that I assume his duties at graduation in
June, 1927, in order that he might be at Amherst College, where an honorary degree was to
be conferred upon him by his Alma Mater. I quote the highly appropriate citation by
President George G. Olds of Amherst in conferring this degree:
"Arthur Clarke Boyden, Principal of the State Normal School at Bridgewater, Massa-
chusetts, graduate of Amherst in the class of 1876 ; with more than half a century of active
service behind you; of a family of great teachers; head of an institution which has served
as pattern and guide for all schools of its kind ; training teachers for our Commonwealth
and thus preparing young men and women for the greatest profession in the world; a man
honored by the unstinted appreciation of your colleagues and recognized because of your
words and acts in the front ranks of our educators ; it gives me pleasure to confer upon you
the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters."
In 1919, as a labor of love by a grateful son in memory of a revered father, Dr. Boyden
prepared a memorial volume entitled: "Albert Gardner Boyden and the Bridgewater State
There exists in manuscript form an illuminating treatise entitled: "Bridgewater State
Teachers College, an Interpretation", prepared by Arthur Clarke Boyden. This is soon
to be published by the Alumni Association, and will serve both as a complete record of this
institution from its founding to the present, and as a memorial volume to its fourth principal
and president. It was my privilege to examine this manuscript a year ago and again within
the last few days. In closing may I quote its closing paragraph which seems to epitomize
the philosophy of life of him whose passing we so greatly lament, and whose memory we
honor in these exercises. This paragraph reads as follows:
"An Institution with Ideals: From its earliest history this school has had an ideal of
the teacher that is very high. The teaching of children and youth through the formative
years is a God-given privilege, and only the heart, mind, and soul that is attuned to the
Infinite can fulfill this obligation."
Arthur Clarke Boyden has gone from our midst, but the record of his life and work is
stamped indelibly on our minds and hearts. There abides the fragrant memory of one of
TRIBUTE TO DOCTOR ARTHUR CLARKE BOYDEN
May 7, 1931, at South Shore Country Club, Hinghara, Massachusetts, at a Faculty Dinner given in
Recognition of Dr. Boyden's Twenty-Fifth Anniversary as Principal of
Bridgewater Normal School.
Forty-five years ago next September, when I entered Bridgewater Normal School as a
student, Dr. Boyden had already served seven years on our teaching staff. He has contin-
ued without interruption to the present time — as teacher seventeen years, as teacher and
Vice-Principal ten years, as Principal twenty-five years — a grand total of fifty-two years!
During these years of teaching Dr. Boyden — or "A. C", as we commonly called him — was
the Live Wire of the faculty. He was universally respected, loved, and idolized by his pupils.
We liked his teaching because of his masterly handling of the subject and of the class.
He did not seem to overstress methods and devices, but gave us the impression that the
subject matter itself was important! Then, too, he had a technique of teaching that was a
joy and a delight. We worked harder, without complaint, than for any other teacher I
have ever known. Unlike many teachers he was willing to answer questions, and he in-
stantly recognized and encouraged every bit of real effort made by his pupils.
We discovered early that he never lagged in the educational procession, but was always
found in the vanguard of progress.
Dr. Boyden was fortunate in his ancestry, in the schools he attended, the teachers he
had over him, and in the combination of subjects he taught for many years — science, his-
tory, civics, and education, a perfect combination for breadth, depth, clear thinking, and
outlook; but large credit for his successes must be given to his ambition to serve greatly,
to his achieving will, and to hard work.
We rejoice that he is at the helm, still in the prime of his powers, and we wish for him
many more years of active leadership in our school. Harlan P Shaw
A TRIBUTE TO DOCTOR BOYDEN
in Recognition of his First Year as President of the State Teachers College at Bridgewater.
Another year has passed since the foregoing tribute to Dr. Boyden was given by Mr.
Shaw. The student body in recognition of Dr. Boyden's first anniversary as President of
the State Teachers College at Bridgewater dedicates this tribute:
The transition period from Normal School to State Teachers College was successfully
attained chiefly through the earnest efforts of Dr. Boyden to impress upon the student body
the importance of the teaching profession in the modern trends of civilization.
The students have learned to anticipate, early in their school career, his concise, vivid,
informal talks on phases of educational problems now confronting the thinking people of
the world. Dr. Boyden commands respect and sincere admiration in his wholehearted
interest in all the attempts of the student body, both as a group and individually.
The graduating members have come to look forward with great pleasure to the time
when they shall be under his guidance in the study of the "History of Education". Surely,
53 years of service in the profession have provided Dr. Boyden with a rich background which
he generously shares with the students.
The alumni come back eagerly to conferences and conventions to renew and further
their experiences in the educational field.
Suffice it to say that the faculty and the student body has the opportunity to have con-
stantly before them the excellent example of a most successful "Teacher and Friend to Man".
Helen L. Foye
The foregoing "Tributes" to Dr. Boyden tell of his place in the lives and hearts of his
associates and students.
And now, just before this book goes to press, we must record the sad fact that Dr. Boy-
den is no longer with us. But his spirit will long be felt in the school over which he has so
capably presided. May we each carry with us the inspiration of his teaching and example.
THE NANCY ROMANCE
A legend of Crawford Notch
About a quarter of a mile south of Notchland at Bemis station, a small stream called
Nancy Brook crosses the highway under an iron bridge and enters the Saco beyond the rail-
road, having its source high up on Mt. Nancy at the west. With this brook is connected a
tragic tale from which both mountain and brook get their names.
The story — which is true — relates that one Nancy Barton came to Jefferson, N. H.,
with Colonel Whipple, as a servant in the family. While here she became engaged to a
farm hand of the Colonel's who had completely won her affections. The wedding day
was finally set, the year being 1778, with Portsmouth as the place. Nancy, after entrust-
ing her two years' savings to her lover, went to Lancaster to make certain preparations for
the event. During her temporary absence her perfidious lover left for Portsmouth, leav-
ing no explanation nor any message for the girl of his betrothal. Stunned by the news,
on her return at night, she decided at once to follow him, and in spite of all warnings and
entreaties set out on foot in hopes of overtaking him before dawn at his probable camp in
the Notch. The month was December, snow had already fallen, and a biting west
wind was blowing. It was 30 miles to the first settlement in the Notch with but little road
through the wilderness other than a hunter's path marked by spotted trees. On through
the awful night she pressed only to arrive at the hard sought camp after her lover had left,
finding the ashes of his fire still warm. Nothing daunted she again pressed on, cold, wet,
and famishing, clambering through the wild pass of the Notch which only one woman before
had ever passed, toiling through deep snows, over rocks and fallen trees, fording the tur-
bulent and frozen Saco, until at last utterly exhausted by her superhuman efforts, she sank
down at the foot of an aged tree on the bank of the brook that now bears her name, not
far from Nancy's Bridge. Here her body was found wrapped in her cloak but cold and stiff
in death on her nuptial couch amid the snow, not many hours afterward, by a party of
men who, alarmed for her safety, had followed her from Colonel Whipple's.
The sequel to all this is, that her unfaithful lover, Jim Swindell, on hearing of her suffer-
ings and awful death, became insane, and afterwards died a raving maniac. Sixty years
ago or less there were still those who believed that often on still nights in the valley around
the scene of her decease, the mountain walls echoed with the shrieks and groans of the rest-
less ghost of Nancy's faithless lover.
The tablet placed on her grave by Mrs. Charles H. Morey, Anna Stickney Chapter,
D. A. R., in 1912, can be seen a few rods up from Nancy Bridge.

This legend was rewritten from "Chronicles of the White Mountains" by J. W. Kil-
One morning in New York early last July, I was fermenting in exile. Arriving to spend
the whole weary summer in the notorious big city, I had come carrying a picture of Boston
Common in one hand and a return timetable in the other; for I am a New Englander, and
in my mind Beacon Hill is a Mecca while New York has always been synonymous with
cheapness, grossness, and noise. It was in this frame of mind that I listened to the superin-
tendent of our boarding house — which is located at St. George on Staten Island — telling
me that the roof was open to tenants, and that the view was excellent because we were on
top of a hill in the middle of the harbor. "Is the hill so high that I can see the South Sta-
tion?" I scoffed. Since there seemed to be nothing else to do, however, I went up to look.
Finding the roof hot and dirty, I decided immediately to go downstairs again. I paused
for a moment by the parapet, nevertheless, just to be able to say that I had seen the view.
Two hours later I stood there still; on the morrow I visited the roof again, likewise on the
next day, and all the days that followed. At first I did this without knowing why; then I
began to realize that I enjoyed it. Thus a New Englander became satisfied in a new land,
and he is still wondering what powers worked the miracle, — still trying to explain what
happened to him.
Perhaps the view from St. George is its own justification for what it did to me.
The only fixed object on the water itself is the lighthouse on Robbin's Reef, just off
St. George; everything else is afloat, and comes and goes. First there are the big liners
that pass up and down the bay. One afternoon the new Manhattan of the United States
Lines, Captain George Freid in command, entered the harbor on her maiden voyage and
the Akron flew overhead to pay her homage. The next morning the Berengaria, Bremen,
and Majestic steamed out through the Narrows all in line, looming up so large that Brooklyn
disappeared behind their funnels. The excursion steamers, most of which are bound for
Coney Island, or Sandy Hook, form a second group. A Coney Island boat passes once
every hour — a little ship of a few hundred tons, with a big paddle wheel and a romantic
name such as Pegasus, Sirins, or Osiris. Constantly weaving back and forth across these
lines is a third factor of the traffic, the ferries, remarkable crafts that seem to move for-
ward, backward, or even sidewise with equal agility. These three classes of ships having
established courses constitute about one-half of the harbor traffic; the rest is made up of
oil-tankers, freighters, tramps, tugs, barges loaded with freight cars, a few intrepid motor-
boats, and several other nondescript craft "left-over and unclassified."
It is in the late afternoon that this maze of traffic is most impressive; then it reaches
its greatest volume, and the setting sun shining on the western sides of the ships makes
it so clear when viewed from Staten Island, that with field glasses one can read the name
on an ordinary vessel anywhere in the harbor. At five o'clock we distinguish the Boston
boat as it swings up the East River; and at this time of day I identified the Myles Slandish,
a Boston Harbor excursion steamer that I had not seen since childhood, rounding the Bat-
tery five miles away. The twilight hour has its advantages, too. It is perhaps the love-
liest time; for then the factory chimneys have ceased smoking, the hurrying ships have made
port, the sparkling waves have settled down to wait for the moon to rise, and the fading
sunset bathes the bosom of the harbor and the curves of the far shore in lavender and old
rose. Then again when real darkness comes, the scene becomes what is certainly the most
wonderful night-time spectacle I have ever beheld. Lighthouses and buoys flash white,
red, and green over the water, while ferries and other small craft are lighted brightly; on
the further shore the Statue of Liberty is floodlighted, skyscrapers in Manhattan show air-
plane beacons, electric signs flash in Brooklyn, and the Bay Ridge Parkway traces out the
shore line; while close at hand in Bayonne the Standard Oil piers are illuminated like Christ-
mas trees; and occasionally fireworks sent up from far away at Coney Island augment the
display. Only fog shuts out the sight; and even then the sounds have interest: at regular
intervals there comes the single note from Robbins' Reef, while occasionally a long blast
followed by two short ones is heard and we know a tug towing two barges is out there some-
where in the grayness.
I have spoken of how the harbor changes from time to time; yet there is an element
about it that is ever the same. Standing here, one feels that he is in the presence of great-
ness. There is in the air a glory that points to the magnificence that man has here achieved,
and a tension that whispers of forces struggling toward something more; yet there is in
the air a restfulness that speaks of the smile of nature on the whole affair, and of the peace
of an eternity dwelling in the depths of the bay.
Truly to appreciate the harbor is of necessity to dwell beside it. When each factor is
analyzed, criticised, and fitted neatly into its pigeon-hole, there is the harbor like a great
warm heart throbbing, and shaping the beat of our pulse to its own, — unaccountable, won-
derful, and seeming more than human. It is, then, proper that my considerations should
culminate in a bit of verse that I have sung to my harbor as a lover sings to his beloved;
and I leave it alone in the hope that perhaps the Muse will give it grace to suggest some-
thing more than it says : —
I perch beside the window pane, and rest
My eyes upon the white-capped waters blue,
The wandering ships and tugs of endless quest,
And skyline spires mist-wrapped in steel-gray hue.
Night wakes ten-thousand lights in Jersey-state,
The Bedloe torch, the Robbin's winking eye;
The ferries, brilliant bugs with crawling gait
That work all night beneath a watching sky —
Sometimes with dawn comes fog ; yet then we hear
The hoots and toots of shipping never still :
And often sunset paints a scarlet mere
Beyond the Bayonne arch, and down the Kill.
Harbor! May I with you keep fresh and free
The fire, — the faith, of hearts who dwell by me.
George Alfred Jones
The night wind cools the panting dunes
The chill starlight splinters the soft skies
The desert moon pales the stretch of ridging sand —
To look like the bleached bones of animals.
The cloud ships sail across the sky,
The stars' bright candles shine.
The moon sends forth her gleam on high,
The world is hers and mine.
The beauty of the night holds sway,
And magic rules the sphere;
All cares and sorrows fade away;
The infinite draws near.
Cloudless skies and burning rays
Beating down on dusty ways,
Endless sands and rolling dunes,
Phantom waters, tinkling tunes,
Plodding camels, weary men,
Resting now, then on again;
Hastening now, but all in vain;
Endless is the burning plain.
The dippers seek the milky way,
The moon sails on and on,
Till daylight breaks, the sun awakes;
Our universe is gone.
Silken winds slipping through shaggy palm trees
A pale south sea moon spreading a silver fire
Sleek sand melting into frothing surf
Flashing water lapsing rhythmically
Nameless whispers — haunting
Sweet music — drifting
Call me back.

Up and out they go,
Slender stems; green arches
Peopled with petals
Golden, warm and bright,
Sprayed with wisps of cooling fern.
Softened with cups of amber,
Wide ope'd buds —
Yet — only one dips
To kiss the rim
Of the curved earthen bowl.
Each morn I wake on a mountain high
To see as in a dream,
A golden sun that lights the sky
And showers its radiant gleam.
I know the story the West Wind tells
When he darts through the tall straight pine,
And the joyous song of the stream in the Fells
As it flows in its old worn line.
And above the snow-capped, jagged peaks
That cut the purple clouds,
I hunt a thousand leagues afar
To feed three hungry mouths.
What joy in my heart when summer is nigh-
An old world born anew.
Where nature green lifts her face on high
To meet the cold fresh dew.
When grapes ripen
To dripping clusters
Their cloying depths
I find in thee.
When petals fall
In clouded silence
Their poignant calm
I find in thee.
But oftentimes the skies grow black
When the thunder roars its best
And spearhead-flashes light the sky
As I seek my warm deep nest.
I am safe from the hunters and know no fear;
My heart is light and gay;
O'er high, bold cliffs I am lord and seer —
Endless my land of play.
THE RISING MOON
I saw beauty in hallowed light;
I saw God preparing the night.
I saw a golden speck
Upon a weary winter sky;
I hesitated, awed,
Though the wind blew cold
and night was nigh —
And slowly, evenly, splendidly,
The moon arose from back a cloud,
A glorious mass of molten fire,
Majestic, clear, and calmly proud!
Here was Autumn gay
Radiant, God's ev'ry
I have learned these golden
Many things from printed
Yet forgot — is it not sad? —
The festival that Autumn

IF JARS COULD SPEAK
If jars could speak — perhaps they'd say,
"I wonder why I'm made this way
If I had been the Potter, tho —
I'd make myself not quite so low."
Although we travel over all the world
And see the works of nature and of man,
And marvel at the scenes to us unfurled,
The wondrous scenes o'er which the sky does span ;
"I pass unnoticed, I'm so small
Among the others, large and tall.
If I had been the Potter, why —
I'd made myself just twice as high."
The master chose the smallest one
And sagely spoke, thus — '"Tis well done-
It is not always height or girth —
The Potter's touch determines worth."
And gasp astound at heights of pyramids,
At nature's coral lacework of the sea,
At ancient ruins, 'neath which must be hid
The secrets of a long past century;
We find the world in all its glory 'rayed ■
May not compare to charm we have at hand
In every rock and rill, or great cascade
We 'counter in the realm of our home land.
The little jar was glad to say,
"I know now, why I'm made this way-
If I had been the Potter — how?
I'd make myself, just as I'm now."
For if o'er all the world we chance to roam,
We'll find nowhere the beauty of our home.
Gladys A. Davidian
And if we think we're rather small —
Just let the Potter mold the ball.
If he makes us unlike the rest,
Perhaps, 'tis he who knows the best !
Bessie T. Freitas
If all the flowers that ever grew
Sprang up anew in the glistening dew,
I wonder which would the fairest seem,
And which would be touched with the first sunbeam?
Would the sunflower rear a giant stalk
And be the Sun of the colorful flock?
Or would she lower her golden head
And bow to the hollyhock, queen instead?
Would all the violets happy seem?
Perhaps, if the sun sent a piercing beam.
Which scent would rise over all the rest?
Would the roses, of all, be loveliest?
If all the flowers that ever grew
Sprang up anew in the glistening dew,
I'd find the smallest "Forget-Me-Not"
And give it to you for its simple thought.
Words are silver.
They drop like ringing metal
And echo in the air like bells —
Words are music.
They sing like courting love-birds
And pierce the deep silence like flutes-
Words are fairies.
They flit by us so airily
And caper in the air like elves —
HE LOVES ME
And faces in the flames;
Charred coals, blackened,
That once were glowing bright;
Well, life is always that —
What then? Another dawn?
She plucked a daisy just for fun
And broke the petals, one by one.
"He loves me? No; he loves me not.
He loves me? No; he loves me not.
Does he love me? Oh! say 'tis so."
The final petal answered: "No".
She paused, then said with laughing eyes,
'Why, Daisy, Daisy, you tell lies!"
THE TRUTH— AS I SEE IT
Last night I was gay.
The sky was antique silver;
The moon, an egret's wing.
Last night I was gay.
Tonight I am old.
The sky is sheenless pewter;
The moon, a broken ring.
Tonight I am old.
A YOUNG MODERN
The silver moon
In the latticed window,
Lovely thready beams,
The lines and bars,
Light upon the floor,
A shady pattern,
The scent of new buds,
Tunes of shivery aspens,
And calmly pull the shade.
Waves — emerald, turquoise,
Beat upon the sand,
Bearing high on their crests treasures of the sea.
Spray — clear, sparkling
Flung high in the air as the waves beat on the rocks
Cascading back into the blue in a thousand tiny
Bessie T. Freitas
Like heat waves
Through a blind
The flat leaves shiver,
Turning the light green
Up and down.
Turning the dark green
Up and down.
Bright with the sun
Salt grasses bending
Soft curving sand
Meet the cool sea.
Of the pond lily
In the darkness.
I long to suggest,
That the frogs
— Just for the night.
FAREWELL, NORMAL OFFERING; HAIL, ALPHA
This year we are publishing our first year book of the State Teachers College at Bridge-
water, the Alpha. The change in name from Normal Offering, our old book, to Alpha, our'
new, is in keeping with the change in name of our school. And so with the following re-
print from the first Normal Offering of sixty-six years ago we say "Farewell, Normal Offer-
"The Normal Offering having lived through seventy-four volumes of manuscript makes
its first appearance in print with the present issue. While we consider no apology necessary
a brief explanation is certainly not out of place.
"The present number is printed in accordance with a vote passed New Year's Eve, after
reading the Offering.
"The articles are those which were written for the Offering of the term to be read before
the Lyceum, and not for print. Hence many things may seem meaningless to the general
reader which are of deepest interest to the members of the Lyceum. There has been no
time for new articles.
"We certainly hope the number may contain something of interest to the members of
the Senior class, the Lyceum, the graduates, the citizens of Bridgewater and teachers wher-
"Should this, our first appearance before the public, be considered a failure by any, we
call attention to the fact that we were never elected to perform these duties. We are in-
experienced in all such matters. School work never pressed harder, and printers demanded
the matter in a very short time after the vote was passed. Critics, be merciful.
"We shall be content, and feel repaid for all the hard work of the past three weeks if
you are inclined to consider this, in any measure, a success — -The Editors."
As may be gathered from the preceding reprint, it was customary in the meetings of the
Lyceum (the literary society of the early days of the Normal School) to have read papers
written by the members. These contributions, in the fashion of the day, were called "offer-
ings". Hence, when one year the Lyceum decided to have these offerings printed, the name
"Normal Offering" was given to the resulting booklet. The extract given comes from this
first issue, a copy of which was in Dr. Boyden's possession. For some years the Normal
Offering was printed by the Lyceum. Then it was produced for some issues by a self-
perpetuating Board, consisting of students from the upper classes. In recent years, the
yearbook has become truly a school project, with a Board elected by the student body.
Alpha inherits the traditions of Normal Offering. May it continue to progress.
